that the government had made three
mistakes. The first In not recogniz

be prepared for a long hard cam
paign. It will hit at our homes, It
will kill or cripple our suns and it
will Increase our taxes. We were
sevpnty-flve millions short on the
last fiscal year. Intervention in Mex

many millions more and that means
additional taxation. It would Ip a
costly undertaking, both in lives and
money It In for those to whom we
have entrusted the government, to
decide what shall be done. What
ever they decide Is for the best, we
must abide by and back up the ad

guard of peace, and a nation united
